Jambo,
Wanted to get a thread started in the Africa section so that now we have worldwide DR Riders presence :dirol:

I just arrived in Nairobi after coming down the east side of Africa from Egypt, thru Sudan and Ethiopia. The riding was awesome. Lots of mud and gravel in Ethiopia and then lots of sand and rocks along Lake Turkana, coming into Kenya.

I'm going to be here for a few months to a year, taking a break from the trip and doing some research. If there's any other DR riders around, let me know :s_thumbsup

Northwest Kenya. Wild savannah country. I saw zebras and giraffes.

Poor python got crushed by a truck tire in southwestern Ethiopia :shok: Didn't think snakes this huge existed here. The exposed meat looked pretty good if it wasn't for the maggots in the brain :bad:

Image
Riding north from Gondor to Axum in northern Ethiopia. The mountainous roads were epic with incredible views but nightly rains left lots of the mud puddles the next day.

Looks like a great way to have an "escorted trip" but doing it a fun way. August isn't to far away for a South African journey :s_yes
